SOMA/CARISOPRODOLUS
HAVING UNENDING MUSCLE SPASMS IN UPPER BACK, ALMOST BAD AS A KIDNEY STONE PAIN YEARS AGO. WHICH IS BETTER I HAVE HAD SOMA,AND SOME PEOPLE SAY FLEXERIL.SOMA JUST MADE ME SLEEPY,ALSO TRIED HYDROCODON#5OT MUCH BETTER? ## Have you consulted a doctor? Soma contains the active ingredient Carisoprodol and Flexeril contains the active ingredient Cyclobenzaprine, both of which are muscle relaxants, so they will only help if your pain and problems are caused strictly from muscle pain and spasms. Hydrocodone is a narcotic, that may help with most types of pain and there are higher dosages available that contain 7.5mgs and 10mgs of it. However, only your doctor is going to be able to help you determine what is causing the problem and arrive at a proper treatment option. ...

Is Soma A Narcotic muscle relaxer
my doctor has told me that that soma is a narcotic and she does not want to prescribe it to me any more. I suffer from chronic back pain as well as muscle spasms. I have tried other muscle relaxers as well as anti inflamatories and none of then do not work. Soma is the only one I have found to work for me without making me sleepy. Any information you can give me i would really appreciate. Thank you, Dana ## No, it is not a narcotic. Soma contains the active ingredient Carisoprodol, but it has been known to be habit forming and to be abused, by some people. However, what you have to remember is that prescribing it is entirely up to your doctor, she is not obligated to do so. You also have the option of finding a different doctor, for any reason you choose. Are there any other questions? ... ...

cor 103 is it a soma
Muscle relaxer Cor 103 ## I have taken Soma/Carosoprodol 350 mg X 4 a day for 5 years. They do very little but relieve nureuthopy (spl). However, I recently got a prescription for Soma cor 103 and they messed me up. I am not taking them. All the other brands act the same, but this cor 103 acts more like a narcotic, and I do not take narcotics. ## Yes, COR 103 is Carisoprodol 350mgs, a generic for Soma. So not a narcotic at all. However, the reason it could be causing you to feel that way is the real nature of generic drugs and the laws that control the making of them. In truth, generic drugs are allowed to differ, in the ACTIVE ingredient, from their name brand counterparts by as much as PLUS or MINUS 20%. In addition, it DOES NOT necessarily have to be the same exact active ingredient ... ...

Is Soma Simlar To Flexiril
is soma similar or in the same categeory as flexiril, and if not, what is the difference between them? is soma stronger and is it a narcotic? ## WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SOMA AND FLEXIRIL ## Soma and flexeril are both muscle relaxers with soma being stronger than flexeril. However, soma also contains aspirin which flexeril does not. ## Thank you, Tracy! Tracy is spot on, except for one thing… Soma does not contain any Aspirin. The active ingredient in Soma is only Carisoprodol, which is a muscle relaxant. You can learn more Soma details here and you can learn more Flexeril details here. The one that contains other ingredients would be called Soma Compound and that one combines Carisoprodol and Aspirin, there is also another that contained both of those with Codei... ...

Which is stronger Soma 350 Mg Or Oxycodone 10 325
I was given a prescription for each, but don't want to take both...just one of the weaker kind since I'm not in as much pain as usual, which one do I take Soma 350 mg or Oxycodone 10/325 mg? ## These are not both pain medications, so they can't really be compared as to which is stronger, since they are different substances that do different things. Soma is a muscle relaxant that contains the active ingredient Carisoprodol. Learn more Soma details here. And the Oxycodone with Acetaminophen is a narcotic analgesic. Learn more Percocet details here. That's likely why you were given both prescriptions, because they both help in different ways. Are there any other questions or comments? ## Well it depends on what you want to take. Those are to different meds. Oxycodone is a p... ...

Stephanie's Drug IDs.
BAD NEWS I am afraid. Watson 933 Pill Image This one is Acetaminophen 325mgs and Oxycodone 7.5mgs, a narcotic pain killer, very dangerous for someone to be playing with, especially if they are not prescribed for them and they have not previously taken heavy narcotics. This is a generic for Roxicet or Percocet. Watson 853 Pill Image This one is another bad news one, Acetaminophen 325mgs and Hydrocodone 10mgs, a generic for the narcotic pain reliever Vicodin. Cor 103 Pill Image Annother bad one, though I am sure you are not surprised by now. This is Carisoprodol 350mgs, a generic for the muscle relaxant Soma. These are all dangerous drugs to be messing around with and using if they are not prescribed for you. I am assuming that you know these were not prescribed for him, or you would n... ...

Dose soma 2410 V have codine in it??
I know some somas do wanna figure out if this one dose. 350mg ## K.. I TAKE HYDROCODONE.... WAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEM HYDROW AND SOMAS ## I think some misunderstandings need to be cleared up in regards to this post. The medication just called Soma, or its generics Carisoprodol do not contain Codeine, or any other narcotic. Carisoprodol is the only active ingredient in them. Thus, though it is a muscle relaxant that can help with muscle spasms that cause pain, it will not help with other types of pain, such as nerve pain or surgical pain as a narcotic would. It is solely used for muscle pain and spasms. And the tablet originally asked about here, with the 2410 V marking contains only 350mgs of Carisoprodol, so it is a generic for Soma that contains no narcotics whatsoever. You can di... ...

white round pill 31 on one side and d on the other
It's a white round pill not very small, with a capital D on one side and a 31 on the other side. ## a white pill marked D on one side and 31 on the other side ## 350mg Soma stong muscle relaxer ## It is soma 350mg cause Im currently taking this med ## The provided identification is correct, it does contain 350mgs of Carisoprodol, a generic for Soma and I'd just like to add some side effect details. Since this is a muscle relaxant, it may cause nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and a kind of sedated/relaxed feeling. Due to these side effects and how potent it is, many people think it is either a narcotic, or just a general analgesic, but it isn't. It solely works on muscles to help alleviate the pain caused by spasms, strains and sprains and it will not help with pain due to othe... ...

white oblong IP466
whie oblong pill was told it was vicodin ## That is incorrect, this tablet is not Vicodin, nor any type of narcotic. This tablet contains 800mgs of Ibuprofen, a generic for prescription strength Motrin, a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory. Do you have any other questions? ## Incorrect Verwon, even in the reply thread you posted the pill description and picture does not match. The correct match to IP466 is Carisoprodol, commonly referred to as Soma. I have this prescription at the highest level dose ( 350MG [comes in either 250or360] ). And I quote from the label This is a muscle relaxant. May cause Drowsiness. Alcohol can intensify this effect. Avoid alcohol/use caution when operating a car or heavy machinery. ## Sorry Sun - Verwon is actually correct. IP 466 is Ibuprofen 800 mg manfuactur... ...

soms/non narcotic
why isnt SOMA considered a narcotic-my grandson has almost died 5 times now from taking too many-these pills are killers ## Basically Soma is not considered a narcotic because of its active ingredient Carisoprodol. It just does not fall under the definition of what a narcotic substance is. " In U.S. legal context, narcotic refers to opium, opium derivatives, and their semi-synthetic or fully synthetic substitutes 'as well as cocaine and coca leaves,' which although classified as 'narcotics' in the U.S. Controlled Substances Act (CSA), are chemically not narcotics. Contrary to popular belief, marijuana is not a narcotic, nor are LSD and other psychedelic drugs. Specifically, steroids are not narcotics. Many law enforcement officials in the United States inaccurately u... ...
